KHCD-2012-032DL (STEREO Reel Tape Master) - Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring; Prokofiev: "Classical" Symphony (Symphony No. 1) - New Philharmonia Orchestra/Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos - Derived from a mint Angel 3 3/4 ips reel tape, this compilation of Stravinsky’s elemental Rite of Spring and Prokofiev’s joyous “Classical” Symphony brings out the lyrical aspects in both pieces. Maestro de Bürgos leads both pieces with insight and vigor, without grating bombast in the Rite, nor forced humor in the “Classical” Symphony. The New Philharmonia was well -recorded, and no intrusive repair was needed, as the tape was well-preserved. Highly enjoyable, and worth many playings.
